Alito's wife leaves hearing room in tears
WASHINGTON (AP) The wife of Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito left his confirmation hearings in tears Wednesday.
Martha-Ann Bomgardner, who had sat behind her husband for hours of questioning over several days, left as her husband was being questioned by Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.
``Are you really a closet bigot?'' Graham asked Alito. The nominee said no, and Graham said, ``No sir, you're not.''
Graham's questions came after withering questions from several Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats.
Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah suggested that she was upset with the questioning from Democrats. ``She's sick and tired of the mistreatment of her husband,'' Hatch said. He also said that she was suffering from a migraine headache.
She returned to the hearing room after a committee break, smiling and holding her husband's hand."
Can you believe that the AP makes it sound like Judge Alito was exposed as a bigot and that his wife is just neurotic? Can you believe that the AP makes it sound like Lindsey Graham was the bad guy in all of this? Can you believe that there was not one single mention of any of the Democrats' vile and hateful tactics? Well of course you can believe it - it's from the Associated Press...
